Mad Dash adventure run

  • Hoyt, Karnas Take Mad Dash Bragging Rights

    Athletes of a variety of ages and abilities put their fitness and endurance levels (not to mention their skill of slopping around in the mud) to the test on June 8. The second annual Mad Dash adventure race was held on the grounds of Fairfield Hills. Hosted by the Newtown Youth Academy and Newtown Parks & Recreation, and sponsored by Danbury Orthopedics, the Mad Dash drew 127 advanced (4.3-mile) course participants and another 286 beginner/family (1.7-mile) course competitors.
